Bacon, bacon. What dog doesn't like bacon?! This dog treat recipe features bacon-y deliciousness and is very easy to make! No hard-to-find ingredients!
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup bacon grease (liquid, room temp)
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk the egg, water and bacon grease together in a large bowl.
Mix in the flour, until a dough forms. If the dough too sticky, add a little more flour. If the dough is too dry, add a little more water. Knead dough by hand a few times until smooth.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin 1/4 to 1/2 inch in thickness.
Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Prick each treat in a random pattern with fork.
Bake 25 -30 minutes until hard and crunchy. Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Yield: Varies depending on the size of your cookie cutter. For a 2-inch bone shape*, recipe makes approximately 2.5 dozen treats.
Cookies should be baked until completely dry inside, to prevent them from turning moldy.
One pound of bacon typically yields a half cup of bacon grease when cooked.
